L. Byron versus Sir W. Juxon, Privilege.
The House taking into Consideration the Complaint
of the Lord Byron against Sir William Juxon, for not
obeying the Order of this House, dated the Fourth

And, after Debate thereof,
The Question being put, "Whether Sir William

It was Resolved in the Negative.
Upon this, the House made this ensuing Order:
"Whereas, upon Complaint made to this House,
by the Lord Byron, That he being in the Possession
of the Tenths, Tithes, and Profits, of the Rectory
and Parsonage of Rochdale, and Chapels of Saddleworth and Butterworth, in the Counties of Yorke and
Lancaster, during this Session of Parliament, Sir
William Juxon Knight and Baronet, pretending Title
to the Premises, hath, in Violation of the Privilege
of Parliament, proceeded to Trials with divers Persons, at the last Summer Assizes at Lancaster, for Recovery of the said Tenths, Tithes, and Profits, from
the Lord Byron; this House, having heard Counsel
at the Bar, as well for the said Sir William Juxon,
as for the Lord Byron, concerning the Possession of
the said Tenths, Tithes, and Profits, of the said Rectory and Parsonage of Rochdale, and Chapels of
Saddleworth and Butterworth aforesaid, did order, on
the 6th Day of December last, That the Lord Byron
should be restored to, and continued in the Possession of, the said Tenths, Tithes, and Profits, of Rochdale, Saddleworth, and Butterworth aforesaid, during
this Session of Parliament; since which Time, further
Complaint being made that the said Sir William Juxon
hath not yielded Obedience to the said Order, although some of his Agents have received of some
of the Parishioners of Rochdale, Saddleworth, and
Butterworth aforesaid, or some or One of them,
some Monies, in Lieu or Composition for some of
the Tenths, Tithes, and Profits aforesaid, since the
Time of Privilege, as the said Sir William Juxon at
the Bar of this House on the 4th Day of February
last acknowledged; upon which it was ordered, That,
upon Demand to be made thereof by the Lord
Byron, or his Agents to be employed in that Behalf,
the said Sir William Juxon should pay back and restore unto the said Lord Byron all such Monies, or
other Profits, as he or his Agents have received of
the Parishioners of Rochdale, Saddleworth, and Butterworth aforesaid, for the Tithes and Tenths thereof, since the Time of Privilege of Parliament; which
hath not hitherto been performed: Now, to the End
that the said Order of the 4th of February last may
not be eluded by the said Sir William Juxon, and
that the said Lord Byron may have that Effect thereof which was intended by this House, the Lords
Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled do
adjudge, order, and direct, That it be, and is hereby, referred to the Court of Chancery (which Court
is hereby empowered and required thereunto), to see
that an Accompt be stated, between the said Lord
Byron and the said Sir William Juxon, of all such
Monies and other Profits of the Tenths and Tithes
of Rochdale, Saddleworth, and Butterworth, as the
said Sir William Juxon or his Agents have received
within the Time of Privilege of Parliament aforesaid; and that Execution may be thereupon had, by
the Power of that Court, in Pursuance of the aforesaid Order of this House, made on the Fourth Day
of February last."
